This time of year, I go to the mall more often than I normally would in other months. It just so happens that this time of year is the time when all of the extra kiosks open up in the middle of all of the walking areas. What does that mean for my shopping experience? It means it's extra annoying.
I hate it when the kiosk vultures try to get my attention. I know you can't tell much by my profile picture, but do I look like the kind of person who wants to buy some honey-flax-seed-olive-oil-butter-cream-lotion-made-with-Caspian-Sea-water? (Also, if you can't tell, the answer is no.) Anyway, that's beside the point. Just about the only thing worse than being flagged down for a feminine hygiene product pitch is the cell phone booth.
The T-Mobile booth or Verizon booth, whatever it may be, is always stocked with the worst of the worst. If you make it on to one of their radars, they ask you about your cell service as you approach the kiosk, as you walk by it, and as you're walking off, as well. (Even if you never acknowledge them once.) And somehow, they remember you. You see, in almost every mall I've ever been to, you have to pass by everything twice. (Once to go where you need to go and again to make your way back to your car.) So when you're making your return pass by the booth, they hassle you again and give you the eye as if the seventh time of asking you is the magic one.
It's not. . . . and it never is. So freaking stop it already!
Do you have any mall kiosks in particular that annoy you the most? Please share! :)
